Scholarship Application Process & Important Notes
The scholarship opportunities will be awarded based on a student’s academic achievements, individual goals, and faculty recommendations. While awards will be made regardless of personal or family financial status, preference will be given to those presently not receiving any other form of financial aid. Preference will also be given to residents of College District 510, unless otherwise noted in the scholarship description.
These scholarships have been established through the generosity of businesses, associations, and individuals. The criteria for each scholarship varies; eligibility requirements have been established by the donors.
